Oops, Missed a Week

Somehow I missed a week of blogging. My apologies to my faithful readers. All I can say is that it has been an extremely busy week. One that I am happy to say is in the books. Nothing particularly bad, nothing particularly great; just a week. I will be back with my random Sarahisms this weekend. Plan on hearing a lot about my new shoes. There might be ANOTHER new pair in my future. We will see...

For now, I just want to update you on a few of my goals:

Giant Eagle Multi-Sport Series:

I am going to attempt my first Olympic distance triathlon in about 7 weeks. I am totally looking forward to it!!! I think with all the cycling I have been doing, I should be good in that department. I should be up to 10 mile runs again by that point but cross your fingers. I kind of had a panic attack yesterday; not enough swimming lately. I am going to have to do something about that this week. Wish me luck! Not how I planned to train for this event, but my body had different plans for me. Not bad, just not ideal.

Chicago Marathon

It's about 18 weeks away. I only ran about six miles this week. Adding in tomorrow's mileage (I will be up to a 50 minute run!!!!!!) I should be at about ten miles. Now, that is worrisome, so much so, Dukie came over and put his head on my leg. Pray, chant, sing, dance, yoga or simply think good thoughts for my training. I am dedicated and will do it! I just need to stick with the Doctor's plan and keep truckin! I am going to get there, and when I do it will be the best success EVER!

Ride to DC

Yep, this is still on the table. Ericc and I (once we both get through our chaos) will spend many days in the middle of nowhere, enjoying a bike ride! I should probably hit up some more Ohio hills to get prepared but for now am trying to stick to my recovery plan. I am looking forward to a great story to share about me, my bike and a great friend in the wilderness for a few days. Perhaps I should write a book called A Ride in the Woods! Watch out Bill Bryson, I'll give you a run for your money! In all seriousness, he is a funny author and worth reading.

Anyway, this is just a realignment of my goals for the remainder of the year. Tomorrow I will yoga for the first time in over a year. I might make this a weekly thing, I might not. What I do know is that I feel good, I feel fit and I am happy. What more could a girl ask for... Well there is something, but that is not what this blog is about!


  1. Yay for feeling good and fit and happy! I can understand why you're nervous about your mileage, but it is better to be slightly under-trained than to get injured. You're getting better and closer to fully back every day! This makes me happy!

  2. Will you be able to text during the crazy DC Ride? I don't know if I could go that long! LOL

    You are getting closer and closer to being back at it. As we discussed the other night, follow what Dr. B says. His goal is to get you running Chicago! So stop fretting and trust the man!
